100 Points – James Suckling
Black to the core, purple on the rim. An intense nose. An immediate barrel-ferment propulsion sweet and candied, with a peaty, iodine, green olive base. Beneath this, a barely-concealed swirl of Vegemite, yeast extract, concentrated salt-paste – laced with paprika, oregano flower, and thyme. A slurry of cocoa powder, a scented waft of black pudding, and a splash of nori-roll, sea-spray temporarily balance this aromatic equation. The palate is dense, with a paste-like texture and weight. A balsamic liveliness, lift, and energy is unleashed. Tannins focus on the roof of the mouth, laden with an additional film of (85% cacao) dark chocolate, mocha. A mix of quince and sesame-paste laden with basted meats and saturated stewed plum, boysenberry, blueberry. Tightly bound wait for decompression! Complete, Confident, Convincing.
About Penfolds Wines :
Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of stand-out wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.
Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon
